Chante Knox, Founder and CEO of the DelivHer, is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in journalism at Georgia State University and she currently works for a popular radio station in Atlanta, GA. Knox began experimenting with different absorbent materials for menstrual cups over four years ago, when she determined she wanted such a product for herself. She found what she needed in medical-grade sponge material used for deep-wound surgeries.
She developed a long lasting, disposable menstrual cup which has the same absorbent properties as traditional tampons and sanitary napkins. The product received a patent in 2018.
Dia Davis, COO of DelivHer, is currently pursuing a dual bachelor’s degree in Managerial Science and Business Economics at Georgia State University maintaining a 3.0 GPA. She currently works at NCR as a Customer Project Manager for North America Banks.
